Sustainable Forest Management from the Forest Owner's Point of View

e
We grow our good trees as long as they are healthy and vigorous - encouraging natural succession and natural regeneration.  An annual harvest, taking the worst trees first generates an annual income.  To make enough money to take the time to do careful logging and earn a profit for the grower - we had to create a new direct market for our wood products.

New Wood Products in our Timber Growers store - Unique, Local, Beautiful!

w
We are currently growing about 500 board feet of high quality timber per acre - about 100,000 board feet each year in our 200 acre forest.   That is way more than I need to harvest!  This year I will cut about 20,000 board feet of dead trees that are killed by Oak Wilt, Dutch Elm Disease or windthrow.  The white oak above died - it is mature!  This 400 board foot tree will earn us about $4,000 as finished flooring!   Articles on Felling Trees

This white oak log is being winched up the hill to the trail - raised off the ground with the fetching arch.  This is the lowest possible impact logging system - requiring the least amount of energy.  Our 50 hp forwarder will carry the log the 300 yards to the sawmill.   Articles on Skidding and Hauling
